I do not own a Barefoot spa, but I am looking at one. Are Barefoot Spas any good? The reason I ask is I see a lot of good reviews online, and some other ratings that are good, but I don’t know anyone who has one. I am looking at the 77LM model. I have a couple questions about it. If anyone on here can help me, that would be greatly appreciated.

Chase lounge seat in hot tub:

I just moved to Colorado from Maryland. At my old house, I inherited a Hot Springs sovereign model. As far as we can tell it was about 15 years-old when we moved in. We lived there for 6 years. So that would make it somewhere in the 1998-1999 range. We really liked it except for the chase lounge seat. My wife and I both enjoyed the massage on the legs, and the floating sensation when you lay back in the lounge, but sometimes, I would float too much! My wife always floated and she had to try and hang on to stay in place. As a result, she would hardly ever use the lounge seat which is a shame because she has lower back pain, and we read lounge seats in hot tubs are best for lower back.

The barefoot 77lm has more jets on the lounge for legs and feet, but does that mean we will float more? I read the newer style lounges, you don’t float as much. Is this true? I would appreciate any feedback from current owners of the 77LM as we don’t care to hear a story form a salesman. We are just looking for real advice.


Our old hot springs had an ozonator, but I don’t think it was working. I read about HOCD ozone and how it almost completely eliminates the use of chlorine. I heard a lot of people are happy with it, and we would be too because we know the chlorine is not healthy for skin. Does the barefoot spas ozone system really work? I’m sure it doesn’t COMPLETELY remove ALL use of chemicals, but I guess I’m just trying to get an idea of how much we would need use. I also read it depends on how often you use the hot tub. We plan to use ours at least five times a week.

Thank you to any willing Barefoot spas owner for answering the following questions: Are barefoot spas any good? How do you like the lounge seat? Does the ozonator really work?

  1. Hi Jonah! We have a Barefoot Spas and we love it! We have the 77NP model which is similar to the 77LM, but it does not have lounge. I can tell you the ozonator works really well. We put chlorine in the spa about once a week, and its just a small amount. I’ve gone a month without adding any, and water stays clear, and results on test strip stay within range.

  2. I live in Northern Virginia, so not far form you, and we also have the barefoot spas 77LM. We’ve been running it non stop for almost three years. One winter was a little higher, but the other two, the power bill only went up about $15 a month. In the summer or warmer months we figured it doesn’t cost much.

    I know this for sure because we got solar panels installed on our roof, and we had to figure all this out. Bottom line, the energy ratings vary, but barefoot spas are very energy efficient. About as good as it gets from what I’ve read, and from my personal experience.
